Classes - Pinnacle or Pariah?
« on: June 19, 2010, 02:38:27 AM »

So, a point has been raised by a few fellow RA players on the subject of classes.

As it stands, in the current version of RA the only way to get weapons is as pickups - 99% coming from random weapon crates. In it's nature, it's a bit unbalanced - sometimes luck just shines on you and you get a rocket launcher. But it works well enough.

Classes, on the other hand, would have you spawn with a predetermined loadout. You'd have classes like Recon (Speed, restricted to Pistols and SMGs), Medic (Ability to heal, shotguns), Soldiers (Slight armor, automatic weapons/Rifles) and Demolitions (Slow, heavy armor, explosives).


Would people prefer a class-based system, or that we stay the course with random and spot weapons spawns on the map?

A possibility might be to allow players to create there own classes? Let them choose there Primary/Secondary weapons and additional utilities.

How about you mix the two Dan?  I recall a Quake3 mod* from some time ago where you chose a class - this class you chose determined what kind of weapons you would pick up as you went through the map.

Say for example you choose the Demolition class: you would start with a small SMG, as you go through the map you would be able to pick up rocket launchers / grenade launchers / c4 / etc.
